Jake Tapper alerts T-Mobile CEO to problem involving wife of slain soldier; Action taken

CNN’s Jake Tapper tweeted T-Mobile CEO John Legere about the above problem, and to Legere’s credit, he got right on it:

It didn’t stop there. Legere took responsibility and was embarrassed by the issue:

Tapper and Legere wrapped it up:

Many tweeters were refreshed with a response that didn’t attempt to pass the buck, and were happy with the way Legere took action as well as responsibility:

Well done, Mr. Tapper and Mr. Legere!

    What a stand-up guy! Seeing something like this shouldn’t be surprising or shocking, but sadly it is.

  • RblDiver

    Taking responsibility? Well hot dang, I’ll have to take another look at T-Mobile for this refreshing attitude!

    • Jeremy

      I have T-Mobile service and have never had an issue with overcharging or Cell coverage.I am happy to see the CEO take responsibility instead of blaming it on someone else like Obama does.

  • World B. Free

    If only a certain POTUS that we know would just once stand up and take responsibility like this guy did…..

    • peteee363

      don’t hold your breath, you will be dead before he ever does. Obama will never accept responsibility for any of his actions!

    • The Penguin

      Maybe tomorrow…on that ocean of dreams and…yeah, whatevah!

    • Jeremy

      He won’t

    • Deborah Hallsted

      He’s real retarded, sir.

  • Chip

    Now, if we could get the “work place violence” at Ft. Hood declared an “act of war” instead……

  • LinTaylor

    Good Guy CEO: Admits to mistakes, accepts blame with no excuses, works to correct them ASAP and apologizes to the wronged party. A lot of people could stand to take lessons from Mr. Legere’s example.

      “A lot of people could stand to take lessons from Mr. Legere’s example.”

      One person in particular would be a refreshing change. Three guesses.

    • aegean1

      I’m amazed at his response. Seems wrong to be amazed, this thing should be the norm but it is not, sadly.

  • Maxx

    You got no “what difference does it make?” from that fella.

    That’s how it’s done “Mrs. 2016.”

  • iconoclast

    Wow. Two class acts there. I like Tapper a lot–a real journalist–and Legere certainly showed his character.

    Good news story of the day.

  • CatHerder

    Shame we don’t have somebody this quick on the uptake to run our country.

    • The Penguin

      One can dream…

  • mike_in_kosovo

    Kudos to Legere

  • lonestar

    Wow! A CEO actually taking responsibility. I’m impressed.

  • BAW

    I actually think there are a lot of companies that take care of problems quickly and efficiently we just only hear about it when they don’t.

    I’ve had personal experiences with Amazon’s return and refund policies which were great and Walmart which takes returns even when you just bought the wrong thing and opened it. My son works for Lowe’s and sometimes they seem to go to an absurd extreme with the customer’s right no matter what concept.

    It is sad it took Jake Tapper to get this woman’s problem resolved but I hope it’s the exception, not the rule.

  • Markward

    I am rather happy that I use T mobile now.

  • Brother Cavil

    Leadership. He’s doing it right.
